Taking Small Steps
The key to reform is communication and understanding. What do we need and how do we get it done? It seems easy enough. Am I missing something? I know there are many factors involved in decision making, especially about things as controversial and complex as education and health care reform, but many of the things I've read point out the lack of direction from the top. The people who are supposed to have the best answers to our problems. The problem is, they are trying to solve big problems. They need our help too. It seems we are forgetting that small steps are the best way to make significant changes over time. Everyone knows we need big changes to happen, but it takes time for those changes to occur. It takes each of us making thoughtful decisions everyday about how we live and what we value. If 300 million people take one step in the right direction, that's 300 million right steps.
